Forbes CEO summit

Posted on June 20, 2006. Filed under: Life, Technologi, VentureOfMine |

Im on this panel today 😉 – after having raged a bit against the Tree Hugging/Sugar Ambience at the Forbes conference – Mr. Forbe´s did not hessitate to send one of the best (and most alive moderatros to ask me to Spice it up). The cool thing is that one of my business heros Thor is on the panel and tis will be first time to meet him 🙂

3:45PM – 4:40PM Where’s That New Blood…is ambition waning in Europe?Like it or not, business bears a polite resemblance to war. New businesses are usually started by warrior types out for personal gain, looking to make a lot of money. From Gates to Kamprad, from Sam Walton to Berlusconi, it¹s hard to find a non-competitive self-made billionaire. What seems arguable is that Old Europe’a welfare state, with its diminution of the personal profit motive may inhibit the entrepreneurial spirit. One-time Tetra Pak CEO Hans Rausing has complained that Swedish industry is like a forest made up only of giant trees, with no saplings beneath it. Does the Welfare State rob Europe of its get-up-and-go? Entrepreneurs sound off about the entrepreneurial climate in Europe and the world at large.Speakers:
